The Charge (Z) Identification Module (ZIM) for ACCESS: An Instrument Calibration using 10.6 GeV/nucleon 79AU


We report the results of an accelerator calibration of detectors planned for use in the ZIM experiment for ACCESS. The experiment utilizes silicon detectors to measure dE/dx, and aerogel and acrylic Cherenkov counters for velocity measurements. For a 79Au beam with energy 10.6 GeV/nucleon, we obtain resolution in charge for the silicon, acrylic Cherenkov, and aerogel Cherenkov of 0.20, 0.22, and 0.45 cu respectively.
